Have you ever wondered what your life’s purpose is?
In September 2005 I realized my life’s purpose. Once I felt it, I knew there was nothing that could stop me. I had a vision of starting a publication dedicated to Chicagoland families. I wanted it to inspire, help families in need and be a credible resource, something families could turn to for valuable information, support and ideas on how to spend quality time together. With that dream, Family Time Magazine was born to serve the City of Chicago and the south, west and north suburbs.
We are now celebrating our 8th anniversary in print with a readership of more than 100,000, and in December 2012 we launched an online edition. That means our Chicagoland magazine is now available to anyone, anywhere at anytime! Technology continues to change and we are changing right with it so we can be there for you when you need us.
Our website has become an extension of the magazine with more than 75,000 hits per month. It is a valuable resource for families and a wonderful platform for our clients to advertise their products and services. We appreciate the opportunity to continue serving you, our families. We encourage you to share your thoughts and opinions. Thank you for your support!
